Abraham reports that at Joe Girardi's request, Yankees officials have "contacted the visiting clubhouse manager of every stadium where they play and asked that the candy and ice cream be removed before the team comes to town. ... The players, of course, aren't too pleased."
Rob Bradford reports that the ice cream machine has been removed from the Red Sox players' lounge:
Evidently the machine was one of the most popular luxury items in the Sox clubhouse, to the point where somebody believed it was a bit too popular.Josh Beckett demanded a trade if the machine is not returned. Mike Lowell added: "I don't know why we can't have ice cream. We won the World Series."
I'm going to assume that the Red Sox got wind of the story and are making fun of the Yankees. Forget about steroids or HGH -- the Yankees are going to be smuggling Snickers and M&Ms into the locker room.
